*Melanie “Mel B” Brown is revealing that she dated another woman for four years after meeting the fellow mother at her child’s school.
The 39-year-old former Spice Girl opened up about her romantic past during an interview with The Guardian. Brown named the woman she was in a relationship with as Christa Parker, a mother of two she met at her daughter Phoenix’s school in Los Angeles.
But that was all before she began a relationship with Stephen Belafonte, whom she married in 2007.
“I did have a four-year relationship with a woman,” Brown said. “But I’ve been very happily married for seven years to a penis. An amazing guy.”
“Well, you know what I mean. But I’ve definitely not been shy or been one to hold back,” she continued. “If I wanted to try something, I did. I had a girlfriend. So what?”
The admission comes a year after Brown was allegedly spotted sneaking into a handicapped toilet stall for an “intimate moment” with Playboy bunny Luann Lee — a claim she rejects in the interview.
The former Scary Spice also denied she and Belafonte have an open relationship.
“No, me and my husband are very tight and solid. But I will be the first one to compliment a woman, to say to my husband, ‘Oh my God, look at her legs,’ or, ‘Doesn’t she look stunning?’
“I do think women are gorgeous. Crazy but gorgeous.”
Brown’s three children include her oldest, Phoenix, from her marriage to Jimmy Gulzar, and a daughter, Angel, fathered by Eddie Murphy. She and Belafonte also have a 3-year-old daughter, Madison.
